#126: Star Wars Vintage Collection Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight outfit)

Another Return of the Jedi wave, another Jedi Luke figure. I think I've mentioned before that this is my favorite version of Luke due to childhood nostalgia. So of course I feel compelled to get each upgraded version of this figure. Now, I've got three. When I first heard about this version coming out, I didn't realize it was all new, so I figured I'd be able to pass on it. As a likeness, and with proportions in general, this is a definite improvement over the previous versions. It's also the best articulated. Except for the waist (swivel) and neck (ball), every joint is a ball-hinge. The binders from the previous version and an unlit lightsaber are also included. So until they release the next version with a cloak (which is apparently due out next year), this is probably the best Jedi Luke you can buy.


  1. Good to see he does not have those 'underveveloped teenage boy' hips the last version had.

    My favorite version of Luke is the Bespin fatigues. Might have to pick up the version that is out right now, looks like the best to date.

  2. ROJ was always my favorite of the Trilogy when i was young, so in a lot of ways this is the definitive Skywalker for me. That pic is great, a lot clearer than some of the ones I've seen elsewhere. I think you just convinced me to buy him :)
